Education is the process that enables a man to acquire skill-sets and knowledge, which in turn, prepares him to adapt to his environment and benefit from past knowledge. It is a perpetual process; the formal education given in schools and colleges is only a part of such process, and is not vital to his existence either. Nevertheless, formal education equips a man to have specific knowledge and specialize in areas that would be of benefit to him, professionally or otherwise.
Computer education is one such form of education that enables us to use computers and its technologies better, so that we may use computers to increase our work efficiency. Since computer is a great enabler, one should be in a position to use them better; hence the utility of computer education. Many of us are introduced to computer technologies after our formal education is over. This puts us at a disadvantage with our younger colleagues. Besides, the concerned technologies keep changing at a breathtaking rate, and it requires conscious effort to keep up with them. Computer education enables us to be at par with our younger colleagues, and helps us ride the technology revolution. We gain satisfaction by being able to work competently, and increase our work efficiency in the process.
